Oscar Dyson Cruise: May 31 to June 9, 2011

June 03: Cruise Underway - Heading to Unimak Pass

The Oscar Dyson has set sail from Dutch Harbor for cruise 2DY11. As with all good days in the Aleutians, the weather changed from cloudy and rainy to sunny and windy within an hour of our departure. Cruise preparations included making a test of the trawl winches and conducting the ship's fire and safety drills. One picture shows Ens. Dave Rodziewicz explaining the finer points of launching the life rafts to the scientists who have just joined the ship. We are now transiting through Unimak Pass to our first sampling stations.
